During the last few months there may have been times where you felt stressed, worried or even a bit of despair about what is going on.
It is normally during these times that you begin to indulge in old behaviours and toxic stressors because it gives you comfort and security.
Toxic stressors could be anything from high levels of caffeine, alcohol and sugar to perhaps a toxic relationship with social media and fear of missing out.
Whatever it may be for you, giving yourself time away from the toxic stressor will allow your body to heal, recover and find its more natural setting.
Sometimes eliminating cold turkey can lead to withdrawal symptoms and the potential to dip back to where you were before. Instead, why not replace the toxic stressor with another activity or item?
Munch on a handful of brazil nuts when the mid morning sugar cravings attack. The nuts will keep you satisfied for longer and no insulin spike.
Review your social media following and remove anyone that you don’t love, or a company, brand and activity that doesn’t inspire you.
(Are you sick and tired of talking about the implications of Coronavirus with every other person you meet or speak to?)
